Aguero broke Rooney’s record

Striker Sergio Aguero was the first to score in all six rounds of the Premier League.

Sergio Aguero’s goal against Watford was scored in the 7th minute, from the penalty spot. His strike was the second goal in City’s 8-0 victory over Watford.

Aguero’s eight goals from the start of the season have spanned six matches against West Ham, Tottenham, Bournemouth, Brighton, Norwich and Watford. In particular, the Argentine striker scored twice in matches against Bournemouth and Brighton. Aguero was the first to score in all six rounds of the Premier League.

The old record was shared by Wayne Rooney and the late Jose Antonio Reyes. Reyes, when he was at Arsenal, scored in the first five matches of the 2004-2005 season. Seven years later, Rooney did the same for Man Utd before he got injured in a round 6 match against Stoke City.

The record of Reyes and Rooney is accompanied by the victory of the home team, which Aguero does not have. In the scoring game of the best striker in Man City history, the Manchester team won four, drew one and lost one.

In the 8-0 victory over Watford, Man City also created at least two other records. The Etihad team only took 18 minutes to score five goals against the opponent, the fastest in the Premier League history. The opening goal in the 52nd second of David Silva is also the fastest table from the beginning of the 2019-2020 season.

Aguero: ‘The turning point is a direct win against Liverpool’

The Man City striker shared about the match that helped him and his teammates change the course of the race to the 2018 Premier League championship.

Liverpool have more points than the first 25 champions in the Premier League set a record number of goals in a season

“The turning point was the direct victory over Liverpool in January 2019. After that game, we shortened the gap with them to a few points. Later, we went ahead when they went through some draws,” Sergio Aguero commented.
